It is one month into winter in Northern California.
The trees have been bare for only as long. This photo was taken weeks ago, but I was waiting for the right time to post it. It is a Blue Oak, there are many where we walk .
And walking is what Emma and I do a lot of these not-so-grey days of winter. Last few days have been fair and I got some pink on my cheeks today, as we walked some new terrains under the noon-time sun !
Of course, I brought my knitting . . .
Beautiful bare oaks.
Aren’t they Morrie? Here, the bare ones are Black and Blue oaks… we actually only have the Black Oak on our land, but right up the hill a ways, and down towards the southern exposure , are the Blue Oak.
Thanks… black and white can seem to bring out the best in a bleak winter landscape, doesn’t it? 😉
Indeed! But then I like bleak winter landscapes 🙂
Oh… me too!
That’s lovely. I’m still impressed how you can walk, knit and control a dog on a walk! 🙂
Hello Kelly ! Well, you know, we’ve gotten tangled quite a bit. The usual calamity is the yarn getting sucked into the retractable leash… that happens constantly. 😉
